A no-nonsense take on the classic Fender Mustang, the Squier Sonic Mustang HH is teeming with alt-rock attitude! This guitar’s slightly compact offset poplar body is loaded with a pair of Squier ceramic humbuckers that deliver both raw, biting rock fury and full-range cleans. Next, the neck’s maple construction and “C” shape deliver a feel that splits the difference between playing comfort and high-performance playability. Prefer an instrument with a slinky string feel? The Mustang’s classic 24-inch scale length offers a relaxed tension and reduced fret-to-fret travel distance — perfect for developing guitarists and players with a slightly smaller grip. Whether you’re after an attitude-equipped first instrument or looking for a bold new sound to add to your arsenal, the Squier Sonic Mustang HH is a short-scale powerhouse.
The Sonic Mustang HH takes a turn from tradition with a hot pair of humbuckers! While this combo certainly wouldn’t be found on any old-school Mustang, the combination of a short-scale Fender-style instrument with two humbuckers arguably defined the raw, unrefined tones of the grunge and early indie rock eras. This guitar’s dual Squier ceramic humbuckers deliver a present, in-your-face attitude that cuts right through a band to stand front and center in any mix. Prefer a cleaner tone? Music Experience guitarists find that the Sonic Mustang HH’s neck pickup delivers deep and rich cleans to complement its aggressive dirty tones, offering the perfect sonic combo for players looking to capture “loud-quiet-loud” alt-rock style.
While most Fender/Squier 6-string family models sport a 25.25-inch scale length, the Mustang family clocks in at a slightly shorter 24 inches. What does that mean for you? More relaxed playability up and down the fingerboard, with a shorter distance between each fret and slinkier string tension. Make no mistake, it’s still by all means a full-size instrument — as evidenced by the legions of alt-rock and indie players devoted to the Mustang family, including the late legendary Kurt Cobain — but it does offer a significant fingerboard advantage to a player with smaller hands or a musician looking for a snappier sound and feel.
The Squier Sonic Mustang HH’s maple neck will surely please players of all styles and backgrounds, sporting a crowd-pleasing “C” profile. It’s more than substantial enough to accommodate players with slightly larger hands while sporting a lightning-fast feel for fleet-fingered runs. Up top on the fingerboard, this neck is loaded with 21 Narrow Tall in a modern 9.5-inch radius to provide slick, fast playability with no fret-outs.
